ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) is observing the 15th death anniversary of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto today.

The party will hold a public rally in Larkana today.

PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari issued a video message on the occasion and invited the people to the public rally marking the event when the country’s first female prime minister was martyred in a terror attack.

Bilawal said that he has reached Larkana where they will pay tribute to Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.

“We draw inspiration from her heroic struggle against dictatorship and extremism,” he said in a video message. 

“Shaheed Benazir Bhutto taught us to serve the people, to strive for a Pakistan for all, not just a privileged few.”

Former president Asif Ali Zardari said the announcement of the institutions being apolitical is also a realization of the dream of Benazir Bhutto, as it will give stability to democracy and establish credibility for the country. 

He said that he can never neglect the mission of Shaheed Benazir. 

“He was guided by her politics and is still being guided by her philosophy,” Zardari said.

The PPP supremo said that no one else faced the difficulties that Shaheed Benazir had faced for the sake of the constitution and democracy. “She was a symbol of patience and endurance,” he said. 

The former president said that Benazir Bhutto bravely resisted the barbaric and brutal dictators. 

“We are strong and steadfast on her ideology because of her teachings,” he said, adding that the continuation of democracy was her dream and by the grace of the Almighty Allah, that dream has been fulfilled.

Zardari said that the PPP is striving to make the country free from all kinds of extremism, where there is the light of knowledge, jobs for the people, equal opportunities for the youth to move forward, women free from the shackles of fear, and minorities with a respectable place in the society. 

“This will be a Pakistan envisioned by Shaheed Benazir,” he said.

The PML-N session, which was planned for today and involved the party’s leaders, has been postponed. This decision was made as party president Nawaz Sharif engaged in extensive discussions with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and CM Maryam Nawaz on the issue, according to sources.

Consultations were also attended by Deputy Prime Minister Ishaq Dar. According to sources, the group extensively deliberated on all facets of the highest court’s ruling regarding reserved seats.

The party leaders’ scheduled consultation session for today has been postponed due to Muharram.

Nawaz Sharif has personally engaged in consultations with party leaders, conducting meetings with certain individuals and maintaining telephonic communication with others to deliberate on different possibilities about the situation.

PML-N leaders have voiced their concerns with the ruling and have called for a parliamentary response.

According to party insiders, a consultative conference of the PML-N will be called in Lahore in the near future.

According to sources, Shehbaz Sharif would provide a detailed explanation of the future plan to the People’s Party and other partners of his government.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) achieved a significant legal triumph as the Supreme Court of Pakistan reversed the decision to deny reserved seats to the PTI-supported Sunni Ittehad Council.

The Supreme Court issued a divided ruling with an 8-5 split on a petition filed by the Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) about the allotment of special seats.

In the Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) reserved seat dispute, the government would respect the majority ruling of the Supreme Court, according to PMLN senior leader and advisor on political affairs Rana Sanaullah Khan.

He stated that after examining the decision, the government’s legal team would react appropriately. According to Rana Sanaullah, the legal team would determine whether or not to submit a review petition.

“SIC petitions were rejected but PTI was given that relief which was neither asked in the petition nor contest during the proceeding,” asserted Rana Sanaullah in response to the ruling.

He argued that because parties established administrations with a simple majority, the PMLN-led unity movement did not have a two-thirds majority.

According to Rana Sanaullah, PTI should challenge election tribunal rulings, with the government carrying out the rulings.

According to sources, PTI officials convened with imprisoned party founder Imran Khan on Thursday to make a decision over Marwat.

The party authorities alleged that Sher Afzal Marwat had been consistently breaching party discipline over the past month.

“In the meeting with Imran Khan, it was mutually agreed that no leader holds a superior position within the party, and any other leaders who deviate from the party’s stance will face similar consequences,” they stated.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has recently issued a show-cause notice to Sher Afzal Marwat due to his irresponsible utterances.

The notice, issued by PTI Secretary General Omar Ayub Khan, requires Marwat to provide an explanation for his utterances within a three-day period. These statements have been considered harmful to the party’s reputation.

The notification declares that making such utterances goes against the party’s code of conduct and contravenes the explicit directives of the party’s founder, Imran Khan, who has underscored the significance of accountable conduct.

Marwat was cautioned that if they fail to react or offer a satisfactory explanation, it could result in additional disciplinary measures.
